where do most people park going on a long range trip?
What options ?
Depending on how long your trip is, drop off all your gear. They have a locker you can store your stuff in or leave with a friend. Drive over to seaforth landing, grab an uber back to fishermans for $5. Enjoy your free parking. But shhhhh don't tell too many people about this, maybe I should actually delete.
Fixed, thanks Jason
I think he mean's Seaforth landing. Yeah the parking at H&M, Fishermans and Point Loma plain ole sucks! I'm lucky, my wife will usually drive me down from LA and pick me up so I don't have to stress about it. My buddy Picklepork is gonna give me a ride home on our long range trip this year if he knows what's good for him.
When I do park at the landing I arrive really early.
Depends on when you go. Out of prime season it isn't usually too bad. Prime time is usually packed. There is some off-site parking, else try to time your arrival with the boat schedules... Look at what is returning when, and try to be there when a big boat returns.
Need the extra man to lug around all the ROCKFISH you catch..??!!!
You know it! Those were some big reds!
Park in the lot right in front of the landings. You’ll be towed from the over flow lot after 3 days no matter what you pay for on the ticket. And parking at seaforth for weeks won’t fly either...
I was speaking from experience as I've done it before. I believe it would have to be posted if it was only free for an allotted time
Just because you can get away with something doesn’t make it a great idea. Seen plenty of cars towed from seaforth and from the overflow at fisherman’s Landing. Trust me I see chalk lines under my tires all the time.
You see chalk lines on your tires at seaforth? In a free parking lot?
Yup... and they were towing some of the random beater skiffs out too.
That doesn't surprise me they were towing those pos skiffs. Those have been there forever. Another reason why I find it hard to believe they would be towing cars when that shit has been abandoned for years
If you are going on a long range trip you can still use the overflow parking in between the 2 hotels. Simply ask the guys at the counter and they have printed sheets to put on your dashboard that allow you to be there for more than 3 days. I used it on my last 10 day trip and had no issues at all.
Be wary of this lot, I have had no problems myself, but have heard of break-ins there. Using your common sense and leaving nothing in view for thieves to have a reason has worked for me. I empty my change ashtray and hide all phone charger cords, etc.
You can also park at the Dolphin Motel for $10 a night. I was on the same 10 day trip as Kevin and that's where I parked. Since our trip was in late October the manager gave me "off-season" pricing and only charged me for 5 of the 10 days I parked there.
I always have a friend drop me off an pick me up
I pay them with fish and dinner of choice
Saves the headache of finding a spot, not worrying about the car while Iam away.
And no parking fees.
You can also park at the Ramada Hotel across the street. It's $10.00 per day And they have a Shit load of Security cameras around their bldg. I park their all the time with no problems.
A GREAT BIG BOAT.
I get dropped off.
Kev's suggestion of Ramada is way to go. Stayed overnight at Ramada last year before Lupe trip and they let me park for free in Ramada lot. Way better than fighting for space in landings lot...no parking charges, covered parking, lots of people around, limiting chances of car thieves and so nice waking up, grabbing breakfast and rolling stuff across street to landing.
